lol, yt. the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, huh?


my latest smile comes from (who else, but) my little guy.
my boy is learning his alphanumerics, and happens to love to play dress up. firemen, construction workers, doctors, army men, knights in armor; i'm never sure who he is pretending to be when i get home. one of his faves is dressing up as a policeman.

so, put 2 and 2 together, and he dialed 9-1-1 to get a cop to come over and play with him.

i was at work, but my wife said there were a few phone calls with no one on the other end, then somewhat frantic knocking and ringing of the doorbell. when she answered the door, a cop asked if everything was ok, and that there was a call to 9-1-1 from the residence.
she turned around to see my boy at the top of the stairs, in full police regalia: helmet, gun belt, night stick, handcuffs and vest.
he invited the cop upstairs to play with his police stuff.
my wife apologized profusely, but the cop was an iritated jerk, and scolded my son to the point of making him cry. dw assured the cop that it wouldn't happen again and sent him on his way (back to dunkin donuts, presumably ).
nonetheless, we didn't make a big deal out of it when i got home; because in reality, it was just too darn cute, and a lesson well learned.

That is the sweetest 911 story I've ever heard, BT. Shame on that grouchy policeman. He could have kindly explained how he had to catch bad guys so his boss didn't allow him any play time.

My friend answered the phone and it was the police, asking if she had children there. When she said yes, several, the dispatcher told her that a young child had called 911 from her phone and asked the police to please "come and arrest my brother because he is a jacka**"! When they told the child that the police don't arrest little boys and to never call 911 again, the child said he thought his brother "might be a bank robber and would they come and get him now?"

That is SOOO funny!! That cop was J-off!! You might have read that I am taking the police test soon. I hope one day this happens to me lol.


The last time I smiled was when I woke up to my 4 year old today jumping on the bed saying "daddy wake up".

lol, douzer and p-king, 4 year olds are great, aren't they?

douzer, it's so hard not to laugh, else ruin the lesson being taught. sometimes, i feel like one of the characters on (dating myself) the carol burnett show, or the original casts of saturday night live, trying so hard not to burst out laughing in a deadly serious situation with/to a toddler.

pastaking, it's a rare man that doesn't change from being a cop. i have cousins on the job, and you'd barely recognize them today from the way we knew them as kids.
i hope you're one that can remember these times. best of luck, man.

f-mom, your friend's story about 911 is really funny. maybe the kid is a jacka$$ ? there's brutal , tactless honesty in those early years, ya know?

Just looked out of my office window and noticed that the Shagbark Hickory a few feet away has some nice new buds that are almost ready to "pop." Pretty soon I'll see a faint green haze on it. Hooray!!!!
